The tiny Whitehouse Restaurant in Lochaline has been voted one of the best restaurants in Scotland by Square Meal voters.

The only restaurant in the Highlands in the top 100, the Whitehouse was ranked number six in Scotland, just behind the two Michelin starred Restaurant Andrew Fairlee at Gleneagles. The top four Scottish restaurants are all Edinburgh-based, including the Michelin starred Kitchen by Tom Kitchen.

The Whitehouse has built its reputation on sourcing local food from the day it opened.

Co-founder and director of the Whitehouse Sarah Jones said: ‘It is great to get such recognition, particularly as it is our customers who voted for us. Lochaline is not quite as busy as Edinburgh, so to be up there with some great names is fantastic.’

The award comes at the end of a busy season and just as the Whitehouse is getting set to close for winter on October 26.
